Tech Tip: Score Great Photos with Fotor

Want attractive images in your blog, newsletter, or social media accounts, but don’t need the heft of Photoshop? Try Fotor, a mobile and desktop app that gives you a suite of one-click editing and collage tools.

When you just want to make minor edits to photos or images—like resizing, adjusting brightness, straightening a crooked shot, or adding a frame or text—Fotor gets it done fast and simply, no comprehensive photo editing skills required.

The interface is very intuitive: Upload images to the desktop app by dragging and dropping, or take photos on your smartphone and edit directly in the mobile app. Fotor also offers some filtering and effects options, so you can make your pictures look like Polaroids or overlay them with other editorial effects.

You can also assemble beautiful, professional-looking collages in a variety of layouts and frames. Below, take a look at some of the TXI collages we put together in almost no time.

Once you've got your images edited to your liking, you can share directly through Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Instagram, text message, or other channels.

Fotor is available for free in the App Store for Mac, Windows, iPhone, and Android.
